Amateur cheesemakers will pit their skills against one another in the third annual Amateur Cheesemakers Competition at the Oxford Farmers Market on Sunday.

Those with a passion for cheesemaking must have their cheeses entered by 9am to be in with a chance of picking up a $50 prize. A $5 Farmers' Market voucher will be given to everyone who enters.

Anyone wanting to be part of the taster/judging panel can register for $2, giving them the chance to taste all the entries and pick the three cheeses that tempt their tastebuds the most.

Points will be tallied and winners announced on the day.

The taster/judge whose name is drawn on the day will win a $30 Farmers' Market voucher, plus a sampler pack of Little Farm Goat Dairy Chevre.

Martin Aspinwall, from Canterbury Cheesemongers, will talk on Experiencing Cheese at 9.30am, as part of the celebration of New Zealand Cheese Month.

To register, or for further information, email littlefarmcheese@gmail.com.
